Hall Appointed to the Hospital Board of Trustees
The St. John’s Medical Center (SJMC) Board of Trustees appointed
Zach W. Hall, Ph.D as Trustee on February 24, 2011. The vacancy was created
by the resignation of Emily Knobloch, MD in December 2010. Dr. Hall’s
term will run from March 2011 through the next General Election in November 2012.
Dr. Hall is a retired neuroscientist who lives in Wilson, Wyoming. He was
the first president of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine
(CIRM), the state agency set up under Proposition 71 to fund stem cell
research in California. He previously served as director of the National
Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes
of Health (NIH) and as Executive Vice Chancellor, University of California,
San Francisco. Dr. Hall currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the
Morehouse School of Medicine, the Board of Directors of the New York Stem
Cell Foundation, and the Board of Directors of Stem Cell Advisors, Inc.
“I am delighted to be appointed,” Dr. Hall said. “St.
John’s is one of the most important institutions in Jackson Hole
and contributing to its continued success will let me give back to this
community which has given so much to me and my family.”
“Zach Hall will bring a great wealth of experience to this board,”
said Mike Tennican, President of the SJMC Board of Trustees.
